SAYS MONEY NO GUARANTEE OF WORTH
SAYS MONEY NO GUARANTEE OF WORTH
J. Ugoen Armour or IChicago. who
is himself worth numerous millions,
does not think much of money. That
is, money In his philosophy is a guar
anty neither of worth nor character
and is by no means that touchstone of
happiness which it is generally sup
posed to be, particularly by 'those
without it. Also, he observed that
the poor man has as much chance to
be happy as the rich man.
Incidentally, Mr. Armour said that
he was nothin, more than a working
man, and a hard working man at that.
Mr. Armour said: M"aybe you
don't think I work! Why, every man
must work-if he Is worth a million.

if he Is dependent on his weekly sal

'You know money doesn't mean
everything. In fact, very little in
some cases, for the full value of it is
not gained. Take the sons of some rich men; their money is squandered in
drinking and otherwise.
"I am the son of a working man. I was brought up to work. My father
tramped from the Atlantic to the Dutch Flat in California. With a pick and
a shovel he worked as a miner and was glad to work. He had to work to

I watch my men. I know the lives of many of them. That doesn't mean only
the men who are close about me, but the men in my plant. Some with only
a moderate salary are far happifr than men to whom the' worth of a bank
means no more than a box of cigars in value to the ordinary person. Be
cause a man has money, that does not make him any better. Perhaps it
would be better if all men were equal in wealth; still if that utopian condi

AIesian Variety Comes From
Australian Chemist Gives Reason for
His Belief-He Makes Discoveries
That Prove of Value to Culti
vators of Land.
Sydney. N. S. ,V.-One of the most
remarkable features of Australian ge
ography is the presence of vast un
derground seas which cover enor
mous areas in Queensland and New
- South Wales, the smaller ones in Vic
teria, and along the extreme western
coast. The problems connected with
their origin, constitution and distribu
tion are among the most interesting
known to science, while there seems
some ground for the claim that our
great artesian system. with all its
mineral contents, promises to be of
more value to Australia than all her
other mineral resottrces combined.
R. Symmonds, a chemist attached to
the public works department of New
South Wales, who has made this sub
ject his own, has just had a book pub
lished by the department which is
full of original research and startling
conclusions and in which he deals ex
haustively with the whole question
from every point of view. He dif
fers entirely from the recent inter
state conference on artesian waters,
which unhesitatingly pronounced in
favor of the meteoric origin of the
water, i. e., that is, that the rainfall
has percolated the pcrous beds under
the influence of hydraulic conditions. in
The diminished flow in many of the nf
wells, which has been so frequently G:
noted of late, was attributed by the ca
conference to the continual draining ht
of the supply by the wells, which have
been put down In much greater num- hi
ber of late years, and, therefore, they tb
recommended that some of them Oi
should be closes down. in
On the other hand, Mr. Symmonds el
holds that the supply is plutonic, or, sit
In other words, that it comes from in
the molten lavas in the interior of the ve
earth. It appears that when a crys- fe
talline rock like granite is heated to at
redness in vacuo enormous volumes bi
of gas and vapor are given off, which kr
accounts for a great deal of volcanic e:
action, for the presence of the large ,
amount of gas found in artesian wa- th
ter, and apparently for much of the th
water itself. The fact that there Is as
very little common salt and other pc
chlorine compounds in the artesian ov
waters at the lower levels, the amount su
diminishing with the depth, is regard- wi
ed as strongly supporting the plutonic pe
origin, as, if it were meteoric, the wa- or
ter would absorb mcre instead of
less salt in its passage through
Several other facts are adduced In
support of the conclusion that the ar- He
tesian waters have been expelled In
a state of vapor from molten masses
of rock in the interior of the earth,
such as the high temperatures of
much of the deeper water, the large wl
quantities of gas imprisoned therein, lai
the ascent of the water, which is so an
noticeable a feature in connection fa
-with the bores, being attributed by R<
Mr. Symmonds to the presence of the at
gas and its expansive force. TI

nel is now accepted, says Prof.
Gregory, as proof that such water
came from a plutonic, and could not
have come from a meteoric source.
Several most interesting discoveries
have been made in connection with
the artesian waters of recent years. c1
One was that the constituent elements
in some of the higher and lower lev- I
els in the same well differ very con- .
siderably, the former being generally
injurious and the latter beneficial to i
vegetable growth. The injurious ef
fects of the higher level waters are
attributed to an alkali which com
bines wtih clay to form a substance
known as a diffusible colloid, which h.
expands in soil treated with these
waters, blocks the pores and renders d
the soil unfit for agriculture. Hence
the bad reputation of artesian waters
a an Irrigant for agricultural pur
poses. But this difficulty can be
overcome by constructing the wells in
such a way as to enable the beneficial
waters at the lower depth to be tap- y
ped to the exclusion of the injurious
ones at the upper level.
